Problem with Internet Explorer 7

I just upgraded to IE 7 and now every time I open the program it takes me to a screen for customizing my settings. When I click to save my settings it says that saving my settings failed. My question is how do I get rid of this screen and just have IE load my homepage?

If you want to save some troubles have you ever tried considering Firefox?

And by your question... I would go in the settings and restore IE7 to the defaults (erasing everything and making it to the same as when you got your computer)

Restoring would be the best bet

The computer I upgraded to IE7 was a work computer so chagning the browser isn't really an option. Which settings would I access to restore it to the default browser?

Restoring to defaults

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab

Click on reset @ the bottom

Uninstall IE7 via Control Panel.

You'll run IE6 again.
